Jarrod Croker considers himself one of the lucky ones in the Canberra Raiders camp, with his wife Brittany and one-year-old son Rory able to drop everything and join him on the Gold Coast.
However, with the short notice and the uncertainty surrounding the length of the team's move to the Gold Coast, some are not so lucky.
"We are quite lucky, Brittany hasn't gone back to work yet and Rory is in daycare but there's people out there who have got partners who are pregnant and partners who have just had kids, partners without kids who are working, so it's a lot harder for them," he said.
"I'm very lucky in that regard ... whereas there's guys who have got it a lot harder than what I do, so we're all looking out for them."
Some of those players include Sia Soliola who has three children, Josh Papaii who wife Sepa is about 30 weeks pregnant in addition to their two children, and Jack Wighton who has three children, including a two-week old newborn.
The 30-year-old said Soliola, Papaii and Wighton were some of the players who had it harder than himself and the side would work to make sure their families had as smooth a transition as possible in the move.
"We've been told all along to expect the unexpected and obviously no one expected this but the boys have handled it really well," Croker said.
"Obviously there are plenty of questions going around and our staff here have been really good in handling that and made the boys feel very comfortable about it."

The Raiders are one of 12 interstate clubs heading to the three hubs set up in Queensland - in the Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast and Brisbane - to allow the NRL season to continue.
The players are heading north on Wednesday, with partners and family of the 41 Raiders players and staff to fly up on Saturday. They will be required to quarantine together for two weeks before joining the playing squad's hub.
"They've got to quarantine for two weeks in a separate hotel which is little bit tough, but again it's the way it is and if we're going to be up there for four, six, eight or longer weeks, the two weeks is nothing really.
"It's been said a lot but you know there's a lot more people doing it a lot tougher. It's not ideal being away from your family ... but at the end of the day it's a sacrifice all families and all players I guess are making to keep the game running. It'll be worth it when they get out and we've got them up there with us," Croker said.
Former Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks great Paul Gallen hinted in his Nine News piece the lock up of "nothing but men" would lead to sexual urges and it would be "extremely hard" for single players to twiddle their thumbs for two months.
However, at the moment ACT and NSW players will only be subject to two weeks of bubble conditions/quarantine before restrictions are eased to allow them to leave the bubble environment.
The Raiders skipper said the two week bubble would not be a problem for his side.
"It's only two weeks," he said.
"I think after two weeks, if we're back to level one, we are allowed to live like a normal Queensland person would be at that time and point.
"If everything is good after that, we'll hopefully be able to go get a coffee and go to the beach and those sort of things. So it's not going to be eight weeks where we're trapped in a little bubble."
Despite the restrictions easing on them after two weeks, Croker did admit it would be a unique situation given the different scenarios and life stages each player was at once.
"We going to have families coming in, guys with two, three, four kids, young and old, and we've got 19-year-old kids who've got no family and no partner, and they're just up there for footy
"We're gonna have to come up with a unique way to make sure we're all helping each other out. One thing we do have is a really tight group ... some blokes are 18 and some blokes are 30 with kids, so it's gonna be different for everyone, but I'm sure we'll work it out."
